About scuba diving in Mexico

Mexico is considered the best diving destination in the world for divers of all experience levels. Mexico spans a huge area with many diverse land and seascapes. The information we have about diving in Mexico will answer all your questions! Scuba diving in Mexico can satisfy even the most demanding divers. It has an extensive coastline along the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea in the east, the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez in the west. For open-water diving and safari diving, The Pacific Coast is better. The best locations on the Pacific are Socorro Island, which is famous for its enormous manta rays, sharks and humpback whales. Guadalupe is a good place for great white shark cage diving. The Sea of Cortez is rich in marine life and renowned for its huge schools of hammerhead sharks, colonies of sea lions and gray whales. For land-based diving and non-diving activities, The Carribean Sea is better. Cozumel offers a diversity of reefs, caves, caverns, tunnels, and a variety of tropical fish species, turtles, nurse sharks and eagle rays. The reefs there form part of the Great Maya Barrier Reef (The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef), the world's second largest reef system. Cancun has some great wrecks to explore, spectacular visibility and some extraordinary night dives. It also boasts an Underwater Museum conservation project, which began in 2009 and now consists of over 480 life-sized sculptures of human figures that will eventually become part of the barrier reef system. At Playa Del Carmen divers can often see bull sharks. Whale sharks can be observed near Holbox Island. Divers from all over the world come here to try the unique cenote diving.
